"...The executive producer's vision continues to act as ACL's north star and he's the reason it's stayed a platform for both rootsy local treasures like Dale Watson and modern pop hitmakers like Emeli Sandé, and why an episode starring crush bait Ed Sheeran can be followed by goth antagonists Nine Inch Nails.
